'Biden Is In No Position To Determine Who Is Black Enough Or Not' | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1


Patrick Gaspard, president of George Soros's Open Society Foundations and former U.S. Ambassador to South Africa during the Obama Administration, addresses comments made by former Vice President Joe Biden on the Breakfast Club, where he said that "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump then you ain't black." Gaspard tells Andrea Mitchell that Biden "is in no position" to make such a determination, even in jest, and he expects that during the campaign Biden will display more "thoughtfulness" in litigating what Gaspard calls his "astounding" record than he demonstrated in the interview. Aired on 05/22/2020.

    Biden is like all Democrats they expect all blacks to vote for them because they say so.

      @The Life Analyst I said that cause that proves nothing,you mean in the 60s most people believed in segregation? Nahhh. Lol. You do realize those segregation laws were Democratic policies like Jim Crowe, right? Yeah back then Republicans went along with the status quo of the Democratic party because it’s called compromise and a product of the time. It was considered in today’s standards racist. But miss me with that nonsense cause literally EVERY COUNTRY has done something similar. I can’t go to certain places in Japan to this day because I’m gaijin. Don’t tell me what racism is if the word in itself is meaningless if you actually have a brain. You mean people prefer their own even without realizing it? You mean a country created by a group of people would look out for that particular group of people? Your telling me people liked (and very much still do) homogeneity? Baffling leftists are so soft headed to get these facts of law and nature.

    This is Bidens ‘hotsauce’ moment…

    • I taught the hot sauce moment came when he said he was raised in the black church during the civil rights era, 😁😁😁🤣🤣

    • And his, “I ain’t no ways tired” moment.

    • @Classy Lady that’s because she pandered through her entire campaign. And it wasn’t just the hot sause comment.

      @alex He actually condemned the white supremacists in that speech, but of course it’s another example of the left needing to take his words out of context in order to fit their narrative.

    White Politician:
    “Black people, do this or you’re not black!”


    • Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Friday that it is time to reopen the economy, but warned that states should do so cautiously, with precautions to prevent a resurge. Trump was right again. Trump 2020 landslide victory ✌️ 🇺🇸

    • I agree Sherri.It was a very ignorant statement!

    • Tidbit Your wrong, stop with your lies you’re making a real fool out of your. Everyone knows that Democrats are full of crap when comes to trapping and holding down the black man. My whole is a woman of color and her family figured that out decades ago. Your views and feelings don’t hold water anymore, facts are destroying the Democratic Party. Your kind of thought process is going out of style, get use of it

    • @stan hall Nobody is trying to hold anyone down, quite the opposite, the democrats are trying to create opportunity, skills training, better access to better schools, making jobs available, lifting people up. Biden is not suggesting that black people do drugs, all he is saying is that it shouldn’t be illegal. There are too many blacks in the US who are in jail for fairly petty crimes, and their sentences are way too long, that is unfair. That’s what Biden is talking about, making sure that families are not torn apart unnecessarily. A kid with a dad is probably a lot less likely to smoke weed, or commit a crime. A two parent family also has two adults who can potentially go out and work, which equals more household money.
      And as to why this hasn’t all been fixed already; that’s because there are a lot of republicans who constantly stand in the way of democratic progress. It’s infuriating to see great legislation, like the bills that have passed the house of Representatives, be left on Mitch McConnell’s desk as he refused to bring them to the floor of the Senate for discussion and for Senators to vote on them. This is what always happens, the dems will need a certain number of votes and they will be one or two short and so great programs and help for the American people gets just thrown out, by one or two republican votes to block it. But that’s why this election is so important, the democrats have to keep the House(which seems very likely); and they need the Senate(this is going to be a super close race!); and they need the Presidency(this one is down to the wire, and the whole world will be watching). If they get all three chambers then the dems can get some real work done; some very good work!

    ” Im a democrat , you are black ” You MUST vote for me because you are black

  8. Give Joe credit for being honest. All Democrats think this way but Joe’s so senile he accidentally admitted it.

    Democrats are obsessed with race…

      Democrats pretend no other race can survive without their white help.

      Democrats are an insult to humanity.

    • And it’s going to cost them too! Trump already enjoys ‘unheard of’ record approval ratings from blacks. The Cultural Marxists keep telling themselves lies and those lies stack onto the lies they tell the public. While all of this occurs, they’ve failed to take notice of explosion in black right wing activism.

    • The democrats identity politics is racism in disguise. You should look at people and see them for who they are not just the colour of their skin.
      This cancer on society has run it’s course. Trump 2020!

    • @Tessmage Tessera How so? The Democratic nominee is a racist white male?😂

      that is what they view as progressive,seperating everyone by their skin colors,putting them in groups.

    I guess “I ain’t latino” or “brown” as Biden refers to latinos

    MSNBC is deleting the real comments from the black community, just go on breakfast club video for real comments.

    • Jonathan Stiefel | May 22, 2020 at 9:36 PM | Reply

      @Shante’ N well…9out of 10 of blacks arent having any of it according vote stats. The other 10% of black voters who voted for Trump are apparently not real black people according to Biden…

    • Crank I did WOW U  R SPOT ON & BTW Have  a great day!

    • LORD EXPLOSION MURDER!! DAMMIT! | May 22, 2020 at 10:06 PM | Reply

      *+Shante’ N*Wtf you mean ‘there were no lies in what he said’ when he blatantly lied about the crime bill during that same interview? on top of that he has a long history of lying to black people on top of participating in legislation that negatively impacted black people.Like him or not Trump’s the only one between himself and Biden that’s been speaking on black issues while the only thing Biden’s been speaking on is how much Trump sucks and then when he gets the chance to go on a platform to speak to black people he puts on a ridiculous and condescending accent, lies, speaks over ctg to avoid answering questions as he questions the blackness of black people.I probably won’t vote for Trump either but I’ll never vote for Biden as his record (just like Kamala’s) speaks for itself and when it comes to the black community it’s not a good look at all.

      The only agenda you seem to have is keeping black people on the plantation.

    • @Shante’ N Hey sweetie, you speak for yourself, not me, so stop with the monolithic “we” crap. I’ve built a wonderful life for myself and Trumps polices align with my personal agenda. The only thing the dems offer is social justice BS that doesn’t benefit me. Also, older Black folks are registered dems mostly, I’m not affiliated with either party, I vote based on who will implement polices that will directly benefit me.

    • @Allen Ahmaad Asar’el They show the whole video, no deletes.

    • @Nurse Blacke Go vote for the party of the KKK, and the party that champions abortion, to the point than in NYC, more Black babies are aborted than born. As a nurse, you should be HIGHLY offended by the Democrat party…
